Our Honey

Our bees produce honey foraged from Canola, Alfalfa, Clover, Borage and a variety of wildflowers to create 100% Raw Canadian Honey. We care about the quality of our honey and take pride in being able to provide you with a product that is wholesome.

The Hive

A wood floor, box and a roof all together make up a home for our hives. Within this structure there is a queen, workers and drones. Frames of wax suspend within the hive where the queen lays her eggs and the workers store pollen and nectar.    


Build Up

The honey bee (Apis mellifera) naturally wants to store honey and multiply. 

Through the spring and summer the hive population expands. We add boxes to the hive to allow for the increase in population.

Honey Flow

During the long summer days the bees forage on the flowers that are grown in our area. These flowers sources include Canola, Alfalfa, Clover, Borage and a variety of wildflowers.


Harvest

During this period we remove the boxes of honey from the hives and haul it home to our extraction plant.

Extraction

During this step the honey is removed from the frames that are inside each box.  


Finished Product

After the honey is removed from the frames it is placed into settling tanks for a 24-48 hour period. Once the all the fine wax has settled out of the honey we fill our containers.
